"You stick to your statistics and articles, and I will stick to my lifetime experience"

The fact that you regard a reliance on 'statistics' rather than a subjective opinion as 'dodging' is a further illustration of the cultural divide. I'll stick to the facts, if you don't mind.

You had a bad experience in Denmark (for 30 terrible years). Mr & Jensen also had bad experiences which coloured their outlook. You left. End of story.

The rest of us will try and work out what the differentiating factor is that enables an Indian Hindu to do so much better in Europe than his Muslim counterpart from his neighbouring country of Pakistan. It can't be race as they look identical. You obviously don't believe that religious & cultural beliefs on their part have any bearing on the subject, so that rules that out (as far as you're concerned). So if it's not race and it's not religion/culture what does that leave us with as a differentiating factor? It's fine to dispute a theory but it doesn't get you very far if you don't have an alternative theory to offer......
